Bag Testing

In the growing world of recycling and being green; many cities, states, and counties have adopted plastic bag bans or reusable bag laws. Here at Am Testing, we have developed testing protocols to adhere to these bag bans to help Plastic Manufacturers pass the required testing of these bag requirements. Some of these states include California, Oregon, and Illinois. Bag testing is one of our specialties here at AM Testing and we consistently help out manufacturers with their new products. It is critical that we continue being green and one way to do that are by using reusable bags.
